"Awake your senses by engaging in the sounds of nature and a wonderful sunset"

Once Upon a Time...

Located near the dam of the Gaio Valley, stands this boutique hotel that sees its reflection mirrored in the clean and calm water coming from one of the most well-known rivers of the Alentejo, Sado.

Discover this place with 14 rooms and admire the typical Alentejo landscape that surrounds you in this experience. Enjoy the unique sunset from the restaurant terrace overlooking the dam and delight yourself with the typical flavours from Alentejo.

Relax in the pool or on the deck overlooking the dam, go fishing, venture out on a canoe or bike and get to know the Alentejo better. You can also see the Alentejo from another perspective, doing a balloon ride, to enjoy the green of the fields and the Alentejo mountains.

Alentejo is a serene and practically untouched region. Let yourself be surrounded by the sensations and sounds of nature and feel the privilege of silence, leaving everything behind for a few days.
